Today is our one year “RVersary”; we’ve been on the road for a full year! I’ve analyzed our miles and days between stops. Our travel patterns sure have changed since we started!
- In year one, we visited 16 different campgrounds in 5 different states.
- Our very first trip was the longest and the only one to include a stop over.
- We averaged 146 miles per trip.
- Our longest trip was from home to Pigeon Forge, TN. Our shortest was moving between two campgrounds in Crystal City, FL.
- We initially moved very often, so I could get to Miami by August for a pre-planned flight to Peru.
- Everyone in a campground is nice and waves to you – except in Miami! Kayak Chris had only the cat to talk to while I was away.
- Our first 100 days in photos are centered around food and fishing.
- Our 39 mile trip to Key Largo changed our travel pace.
- Along the way, I’ve noticed some things I don’t do anymore.
- We averaged 24 days at each campground.
- That number is skewed by long stays in Miami and Key Largo however. (Without those stops, the average is more like 8 days.)
- We stayed in Ochopee, FL only one day. (The lack of cell service made us move on.)
- I’ve learned not to promise we’ll be in a specific place at a certain time. (I thought we’d be in a whole other state by now!)
- We are no longer on a schedule and are enjoying the journey.
We are happy to continue on our adventure, living our Ultralight Life!
